    Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump speaks during a campaign rally in West Palm Beach, Florida, on Thursday, October 13, 2016. In the wake of a series of damaging news articles that he disputes, Trump said the press "will seek to destroy your career and your family."

    Donald Trump, who has peddled a variety of conspiracy theories throughout his campaign, is in the midst of building his most elaborate one yet around the recent flood of allegations that he groped, kissed, and grabbed women without their consent, NBC News reported.

    At a Thursday rally in West Palm Beach, he lashed out at women accusing him of "fabricated" and "absolutely false" sexual misconduct, linking them to an ever-expanding plot orchestrated by Hillary Clinton and the press to undermine his campaign. 

    U.S. intelligence officials have blamed a rash of hacking attacks against Democratic targets and distributed through Wikileaks on a Russian effort to influence the election — likely in Trump's favor. Trump, however is focusing on a supposed shadowy web of actors he claims are threatening to steal the election.

    "This is a conspiracy against you, the American people, and we cannot let this happen or continue," Trump said.
